Claire commented, "I am super excited to be able to play basketball at the university level. I am looking forward to being a student-athlete in the engineering program at the University of Alberta and can’t wait to play with a great group of girls!"

Claire has been invited to a number of national team identification camps with Canda Basketball and was a member of Team Manitoba at the 2017 Canada Games where she helped secure a Bronze Medal for the host province.  She was invited last spring to take part in the 2018 Capital Courts National Girls Showcase game which featured other top female basketball players from around Canada.
